Remembering John Wilcher


PA West Soccer is sad to share the news that John Wilcher has passed away.   He passed away on April 29, 2021. 

Mr. Wilcher was PA West Soccer's first President, serving the association from PA West Soccer’s initial season in 1975-76 through 1980 when he became the Region I (East Region) Sub-regional Director.

He also served as the Boys Soccer Coach at Mt. Lebanon High School before taking the post as the first Women’s Soccer Coach at Allegheny College in 1985.  During his time in Meadville, he also served PA West Soccer as the founding director of the Lake District.

Mr. Wilcher is a member of the PA West Soccer Hall of Fame.  He was inducted in January 2018 as a member of the Hall's inaugural class.

We remember John's lasting legacy to the game and contributions to youth soccer in Western PA.
